The Dallington Journey
School motto: 'Value your own worth and understand the differences in others.'
At Dallington, our children address teachers by their first names and do not wear a uniform. We offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced. We provide for each child a happy, secure and stimulating environment that promotes discovery and values a love of learning.
We encourage our children to become confident and enthusiastic learners. Our children work and play together in a co-operative, supportive way and great emphasis is placed on nurturing the development of the powers of reasoning and reflective, critical thinking.
We provide an environment where children can openly relate to others and expect to be listened to and respected for their points of view.
Dallington is a friendly, open environment in which children develop self-confidence and feel a great sense of belonging. We nurture active learning, inquisitiveness and natural progression. We introduce and develop skills such as Tap Dancing, Ukulele, Circus Skills and ‘Forest Schools’. A full education at Dallington is not only academic, it is an opportunity to experience and maintain a diversity of activities.
The headteachers of many of the senior schools to which our children transfer say they can tell a ‘Dallington Child’ by their independence, spirit and consideration for others; something of which we are enormously proud.
